lyrics

Sometimes I wish that you could see the beast you bring out of me
I keep it locked inside but moonlight sets it pained and free
You’d better take my hand, my feet are bloody in this land
No preacher-man can save your soul, and babe, by now

I want to howl, I’m here for you tonight
I want to howl, and no one, babe, can drag me
From the blood-moon’s light

Like laughter in the dark, I’ve got you running scared
You’d better keep your silver close and try your hardest not to care
Sometimes I worry that I’ll be the death of you
But clouds are parting in the night and babe, by now

I want to howl, I’m here for you tonight
I want to howl, and no one, babe, can drag me
From the blood moon’s light

The scent of victory is more enticing than your skin
Although the starlight in your hair can sometimes make me ache within
You’re not the only one who’s got a past of shame
I keep mine hollow in my name, but babe, by now

I want to howl, I’m here for you tonight
I want to howl, and no one, baby, can drag me
From the blood moon’s light

I am not the sum of all my anger and fear
Though my rage may bruise
There isn’t any person who can pardon my sins -
My god lives on the dark side of the moon

It’s not your lonely mind or your tortured soul
That makes me want to dig my fingers into your chest and feel your heart pulse
I want to hunt you down, I wanna bear your weight in my arms
I want your heart inside my breast, but now I want

To hear you howl, I’m here for you tonight
I want to howl, and no one babe, can save me
From the blood moon’s light
No one can save me from my howl
